Make an Easy Monkey Wrench Baby Quilt

Here's a little baby quilt pattern that you can customize to suit your needs. In the example, a variety of warm fabrics are used to make the 'wrench' portion of each Monkey Wrench quilt block, but block backgrounds are all sewn from the same dark brown. Cornerstones repeat the dark brown, while sashing is assembled from a lighter golden-brown print. The outer border is lighter yet, and sewn with a warm neutral fabric.

Alter any of the baby quilt's fabrics to create a completely different look.
